Mr. Selvakumar, a Mannargudi ( Tamilnadu) based school teacher provides rainfall and climate predictions well in advance- especially catering to the farmer’s needs. His scientific evaluations of weather patterns and his predictions of dates and time are more accurate than the State MET department.
His voice, text and image messages on WhatsApp groups are quite popular among many farmers.
Many of the fellow farmers ridiculed me last month when I was preparing farm to face rain. I was preparing based on his predictions and it turned out to be very accurate. All those ridiculed me are eagerly asking me about his messages now.
He also perfectly worked out timing and amount of rainfall in Dubai and UAE last month, atleast a week in advance.
He’s very sure of rains in coastal south Tamilnadu, other south districts starting from 15th of April. Except Chennai, Kanchipuram, Cuddalore, North Arcot regions, he says there would be good rains in last two weeks of April, whole of May and in June.
Let’s wait and watch!
